The Walla Walla Symphony Rock and Roll camp is a cherished tradition around Kennewick and the surrounding communities, and we’re proud to be one of the 2016 sponsors. This is one of the most important programs in the area; as an active member of the community, all of us at Walla Walla Valley Honda in College Place were only too happy to help with this year’s camp.
The Walla Walla Symphony
The Walla Walla Symphony is the oldest continually operating symphony orchestra west of the Mississippi, bringing people together to celebrate great music since 1907. With over a century of experience and the skills of countless musicians to draw upon, it’s an essential part of Walla Walla’s cultural fabric.
The annual Walla Walla Symphony Rock and Roll Camp serves 60 high-need and at-risk teens from grades 7 through 12 during a free week-long summer program, and has been helping them participate in the community and gain self-confidence every August since 2009.
The Symphony Rock and Roll Camp Experience
All teens who are chosen to attend the Walla Walla Symphony Rock and Roll Camp spend their week taking instruction in a range of instruments, and are also provided with coaching and mentoring services.
Professional rock and blues musicians offer help when it comes to song selection, arrangements, song writing, stage presence, production, and even marketing. As a fitting culmination, each camp ends with a student-produced concert to let everyone put their new skills to the test.
Walla Walla Valley Honda is Happy to Help
Here at Walla Walla Valley Honda, we’re always looking for ways to give back to the communities of Walla Walla, College Place, and Kennewick by engaging in charitable events and sponsoring worthy causes.
The Walla Walla Symphony Rock and Roll Camp is just such a cause, and we were thrilled to be given the opportunity to provide funds and help keep the event free of charge.
